Sneaker Spotlight: Jordan Dub Zero

Over the past few weeks,  Jordan Brand has introduced a new hybrid model that takes style cues from the historic Jordan signature line. The Jordan Son of Mars is not the first, and surely won’t be the last, style to incorporate elements of the signature Jordan models. The Jordan Spiz’ike is another example of a popular hybrid model. However, 7 years ago this month, Jordan Brand introduced one of their most popular hybrid models, the Jordan Dub Zero.

In April of 2005, Jordan Brand introduced the Dub Zero in a number of colorways. It featured details that included the sole and midsole from the Air Jordan 4, the rear heel loop from the Air Jordan 6, the patent leather from the Air Jordan 11, the “TWO 3” on the tongue from the Jordan 12, the upper paneling from the Air Jordan 13, the woven material from the Air Jordan 15 and finally, the laser detailing that was found on the Air Jordan 20.

The first to be seen by most were the White, Black and Light Photo Blue version and the White and Taupe colorway. A number of colorways followed, including the popular “Bulls Home” colorway, as well as the “Midnight Navy” version seen below.

The Jordan Dub Zero was so popular that Jordan Brand would bring the silhouette back again in 2009 and release new colorways again. One of the 2009 releases, the Black and Varsity Red colorway is presently on the wiki but we still need to get the “Taxi”, “Laser Blue” and “Cement” versions uploaded. If they are in your collection and you can help us out with an upload, please let us know.

Where does the Dub Zero rank for you in the growing list of Jordan hybrid designs?
